Default My two cents worth.....

....I grew up on the beach, and served in the Coast Guard all over the place. I have never heard of a ray stinging anyone, except when stepped on, except for Mr. Irwin who probably spent a little too much time up close and personal with that animal. As for the accident in Florida, it was just that. Years back, a gentleman died the same way, except he was hit by a barracuda square in the chest. I have been around rays many times while diving, they always avoid folks. Afraid to go in the water? Driving scares me more.
